When your friends or family insist that they "love sports too," you nod in agreement, but know you have a much deeper passion inside.
You want to eat, sleep, and breathe sports - not as a rabid fan, but as a businessperson, as a professional.
You want to be an athlete's advocate and trusted advisor.
Time and time again you've been told that sports representation is an incredibly competitive business. Maybe you're at a point in your career where you've experienced that competition firsthand.
Wouldn't it be so much easier if you had someone who could show you the ropes?
Jill is a sports law attorney who has represented athletes, coaches, athletic directors, and media since 1988. She's a licensed attorney in Maryland, Arizona and Utah. A recently published author of "Born to Be a Sports Agent," she also hosts a podcast called "Representation Without Taxation" and serves as the CEO of Academic Gameplan. She's the wife and daughter of Division I football coaches and the mother of two adult daughters.
Now she's sharing her in-depth knowledge of the industry with aspiring sports agents through Jill McBride Baxter's Sports Agent Academy.
Jill offers detailed instructions on how to lay the foundation for a successful career and how to navigate through all the scenarios you'll encounter as an agent.
This is no 'birds eye view' of the business - her instruction is as definitive as it gets.
Here's the gameplan:
Honestly, you can't afford NOT to enroll in my Sports Agent Academy.
I have seen so many agents drop out of the business as victims of irresponsible financial decisions. Through Sports Agent Academy you will learn how to avoid the financial pitfalls that have swallowed so many agents whole, ending careers before they've ever really gotten off the ground.
You'll also drastically flatten the learning curve of the business, allowing you to start profiting much sooner than your peers - and earn back the investment you put into this course in no time!
As an instructor, I offer information from a unique perspective that you really cannot get from anyone else.
For one, as a coach's wife and coach's daughter, I intimately understand the mind of a coach and thoroughly know all sides of this business. I also have more than 30 years in the business, more experience than nearly all of my peers. Over this time, I've developed an approach and process that is unique to me and has sustained my ability to stay in this business for so long.
I am also willing to offer more information about my process than my peers: I break down things down in careful detail, step by step, with videos, text, links, and downloadable attachments.
I promise you will learn just as much, if not more from my online course as you would in an internship. Your enrollment in my Academy can be put on a résume. And I'll be available to answer any questions you have about the business and offer advice over the course of your journey from the moment you enroll!
At this point in my career, I'm more motivated than ever to pass on my knowledge and serve as a mentor for new agents. I created my Sports Agent Academy to assist as many people as possible in pursuing their dream of succeeding as a sports agent - including you.
"Sports Agent Academy was extremely helpful for me, especially as an aspiring NFL agent entering their first year of law school. This course not only assured me that I am going down the right path in attending law school, but also informed me about many things I did not know about becoming an agent. Jill McBride Baxter is clearly a knowledgeable veteran in the field of sports agency and shares her wealth of knowledge in this course. I learned about everything from how to identify prospects, to strategies for recruiting clients, to giving your clients the best chance to be drafted and have success in the league. Jill exemplifies her core values of protection, advocacy and trust and seems to want to represent professional athletes for all the right reasons. A refreshing change in a time when most sports agents’ main concern seems to be money. I would recommend Jill’s course to anyone who is considering becoming a sports agent or even someone just starting out in the field."
